Healthy Strawberry Smoothie Popsicles

Last night we had some strawberries to use up, so I made a smoothie. The kids loved it! So I ended up making two batches, and another today. I made a variation for Simone.

Here is the recipe:

2 cups Strawberries
1 cup Plain yogurt
1 T vanilla
3 T agave nectar
2 T orange juice concentrate
1 tray ice (unecessary if you use frozen strawberries)
Just enough water to blend

You can use stevia to sweeten this instead of agave if you don't want the extra calories.

And in Simone's I added 1/3 cup cashews to make it thicker and creamier (trying to fatten up my skinny girl!). My Blendtec blends it perfectly smooth, but if you don't have a powerful blender, I would omit them.

We poured some of the smoothie into our popsicle molds. The kids loved having popsicles for breakfast this morning and after school.

Here is my happy girl with her popsicle. The push up was too difficult for her little hands, so we used our other molds.

That looks great. Where did you get the push-up molds? And the Food Containers?

I bought the push pop molds from the Williams Sonoma Outlet in Primm, NV. But they pop up on eBay too. I got the rocket pop molds from Target. Probably like $3 or so. Pretty cheap! I like the cheap ones, because the push pops, as fun as they are, require that I hunt down all the clear pieces. And that is a pain.

Oh, and the food containers are all from Target too. I haven't been able to find the Ziploc lunchables kinds lately, but they do make some rubbermaid ones with three sections. Their website shows what they look like so you can check your local stores.
